Just over three weeks ago – on June 8, 2018 – Emerging Civil War called “fire” and exploded artillery history posts on the blog. We seemed to hit the target, giving spotlight to artillery units, commanders, and big guns while promoting positive historical discussions.
Now, it’s time to wrap up the 2018 Artillery Series, but we’ve already heard from some of our writers that you’ll be seeing more articles related to the subject in the future weeks and months. Thanks for your interest, and “thank you” to all our writers who contributed to this series!
